UPDATED: December 2, 2021

in-person classes | LCC Community Pass

Students will only be able to attend in-person classes, indoor university activities, and live in the Residence Halls if they have an LCC Community pass.  LCC International University seeks to provide a safe learning environment for all students. To do that, and to comply with the Lithuanian government regulations, this system has been developed to ensure that those who engage in person in the LCC community meet the requirements set by the Lithuanian government. Attending contact activities (  classes, events, meetings, etc.) without complying with the necessary criteria is a legal violation and can result in a fine for the person and the institution. Any individual caught with a fake ‘LCC community pass’ will be subject to fines and disciplinary action as LVL III violation and consequences will be determined by COD. We will not require an actual G-pass but you need to meet the criteria for being immune or not infected and provide confirmation documents.  When can you get an LCC Community pass?  

  • After vaccination. Comirnaty (Pfizer) or Spikevax (Moderna) vaccine – 1 week after the second dose of vaccine; COVID-19 Vaccine Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) vaccine – 2 weeks after the single-dose vaccine; Vaxzevria (AstraZeneca) vaccine – 4 weeks, but not more than 13 weeks, after the first dose of vaccine and immediately after the second dose of vaccine; OR 2 weeks after the single dose of any vaccine - if a person has had COVID-19.  Vaccinations expire after 210 days from the last shot. 
  • After recovery from COVID that was confirmed by positive PCR test. The medical document must be in English or Lithuanian and indicate the date of the positive test. The document is valid 210 days.  
  • After testing positive for antibodies. Positive quantitative or semi-quantitative serological immunoassay for COVID-19 IgG antibodies or total antibodies test is valid for not more than 60 days. 
  • After a negative antigen or PCR test.  Antigen tests must be done either through 1808 (free) or in a private lab (personal expense). Valid 48 hours.   
WORK

In order to ensure the health and safety of our campus community, and in order to follow the guidance of the Lithuanian government, there are 4 options available for on-site work:

  • Vaccination. This applies to fully vaccinated employees with Comirnaty (a.k.a. Pfizer), Janssen (a.k.a. Johnson&Johnson), Vaxzevria (a.k.a. Astra Zeneka), Spikevax  (a.k.a. Moderna). Expires after 210 days unless a booster shot is obtained (valid from December 28, 2021) 
  • Antibodies. You have to have valid evidence of having anti-S,anti-S1, or anti-RBD SARS-CoV-2 IgG antibodies. The evidence is valid for 60 days and can be extended after testing again. Testing is done by registering in laboratories that provide certificates (at your own expense).
  • Post-COVID. You have to have valid evidence of having been diagnosed with COVID in the last 210 days confirmed by PCR test. 
  • Regular testing every 7-10 days.   Testing is done by registering in laboratories (at your own expense). We recommend calling Medicina Practica at 8 5 250 7744 or registracija@medicinapractica.lt LCC has a discounted price of 16 EUR.   

Employees who are not immune, do not test regularly, and want to continue working, must get written permission from their direct supervisor to work remotely. This must be communicated to HR Office (ediaper@lcc.lt).  Employees that continue to work without appropriate documentation or arrangements for remote work may be dismissed (LT: nušalinta(s)) from work without compensation until they submit the appropriate documentation (In accordance with the law) Upon institutional inspection, employees that work on-site without appropriate documentation can be fined from 500 to 1500 Euros while the institution can be fined from 1500 to 6000 Euros. Please refer to HR (ediaper@lcc.lt) for more information. More information on mandatory testings.  

If you have symptoms of respiratory illness

  • Don’t come to work if you develop any, including mild, symptoms of respiratory illness including – fever, cough, shortness of breath, loss of taste, or smell. Make sure to communicate that to your supervisor.
  • It is strongly recommended to get tested (even if you are vaccinated) once you develop symptoms.
  • Report positive test through  http://www.lcc.lt/ContactTracing immediately. 
  • Contact your GP to be informed about the next steps on how to finish self-isolation. 
SPRING 2022
  • No off-site mode. Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic context, LCC remains dedicated to providing the international Christian liberal arts education that our mission promises. Classroom interaction is critical to the learning process. Language and communication skills, together with critical thinking and problem-solving skills, are greatly enhanced through active participation in a classroom environment.  Upon this basis, we are inviting all students to return to campus this spring semester to attend classes in the traditional face-to-face classroom format.  For spring semester 2022 only, a few courses that are predominantly taken by graduating seniors will be offered as online courses. For further details please consult your academic advisor once the spring course offerings are published. 
  • No hybrid classes. Please note that for the reasons mentioned above we will not be offering classes in hybrid mode as of Spring 2022. According to the Government regulations, if you develop any, including mild, symptoms of respiratory illness you may not come to in-person classes. Instructors will post learning materials and other resources on Moodle.  
  • LCC Community Pass to attend in-person classes. The 4 main categories demonstrating readiness for in-person classes include: 1. have been vaccinated with an EU vaccine in the last 210 days; 2. have had a positive PCR test for COVID in the last 210 days (please note that for travel isolation 180 days apply); 3. have had a positive antibody test in the last 60 days (not valid for travel isolation waiver); 4. are getting tested every 48 hours at your own cost (antigen test costs 16 EUR).  
  • Government’s decisions. Please note that the possibility that Higher Education Institutions will be asked to go fully remote still exists; however, this is out of our control. When making decisions, please take all of these possibilities into consideration.   
  • If you have questions about what this decision means for you, consult with your academic advisor about your academic choices.  Check out the FAQ section at the bottom of this page.
